Outdoor sport court replacements with enhanced features such as new retaining walls, new fencing, new lighting, and improved ADA accessibility were completed at Murphy-Oakley Park (Park District: Southeast), Malvern Hills Park (Park District: West) and Montford Park (Park District: West Central).
In 2016, the outdoor court renovation plan was included in the City’s $17 million bond referendum to support park and recreation facilities improvements. The bond referendum was approved by Asheville voters resulting in an allocation of $1 million for outdoor court rebuilding projects. Locations for court renovations were selected using an equity matrix that included condition of the existing facility, neighborhood demographics and park resource distribution.
